Vins d’hiver from the Rhône, Burgundy, Roussillon & Provence.
A stylish, mid-weight white from the Southern Rhône cru of Lirac, a nervy Chardonnay from Burgundy and an aromatic Ve rmentino from near Aix-en-Provence provide our trio of whites.
Our reds begin with an acclaimed Syrah grown on volcanic basalt rock on the edge of the Coiron Mountains in the South-Eastern Ardèche, which Julia Harding MW napped as her 'Wine of the Week' on jancisrobinson.com. This is followed by a Gamay from the Cave de Saint-Désirat, that Matthew Jukes reviewed as 'light and fresh', "... this is a house red for all dishes." Finally, a vibrant wine from Bruno Ribière's ancient, 140 year-old pre-phylloxera plantings of Carignan in the foothills of the Pyrenees, ideal with Toulouse sausages or cassoulet.
